Dr. Google is nice and all, but here are some websites we ourselves use for trusted health information on various topics:
NIH– Then National Institutes of Health are a part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is the nation’s medical research agency. They supply a multitude of information on various health topics through MedlinePlus.
ACOG– The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (The College) is the specialty’s premier professional membership organization dedicated to the improvement of women’s health. All of our best practice recommendations are filtered through this organization. Their patient page has countless topics and is an excellent source for trusted patient education.
CDC– The Center for Disease Control works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same. Their Women’s Health section covers everything from pregnancy, to STD information, to health disparities between men and women.
Mayo Clinic, though in no way affiliated with Drs. McDonald or Agarwal, has an abundance of trusted health information that is easy to digest. We often refer patients to women’s health topics from their website. Check out this segment to see why we love Mayo.
